They smoke cigars.
They drive big cars.
They sell missiles
but rarely write epistles.

They build high walls.
Do they really have balls?
They’re proud to say I’m a rough guy!
Do you think they never cry?

Mr President will never tweet it
and I don’t care if a he has a fit:
great men
are women.

Did you hear
the voice of the stars in darkness?
Did you grasp
the nature of daylight?

The Light is the Mother of Light
as Love is the Father of Love,
and we can get through the night
without any fear
for we see in every man’s
and every woman’s eyes
their bright reflection.

Avez vous dans les ténèbres entendu
la voix des étoiles?
Avez vous compris
la nature de la lumière du jour ?

La Lumière est mère de la lumière,
comme l’Amour est père de l’amour,
et nous pouvons aller sans peur
à travers la nuit
car nous voyons dans les yeux
de chaque homme et de chaque femme
leur éclatant reflet.
